Poona 1988 10 min excerpt

by Samvado

Published 2004


Better but much bigger version available now -
45 min DivX 5 - 120 MB download - search for keyword "Poona"

Rajneesh Ashram 1988 - a rare insight due to experiemntal use of a new camera at the time. The material was unearthed unexpectedly by accident in 2002 by the author. Includes scenes from Poona city and swimming in a nearby lake. Typical day of a care-free sannyasin in those days.

It is cool to download it and give it to friends on CD/DVD - it is NOT cool to upload it to youtube, google video or elsewhere ! So please don't do it!

OK, I have now reloaded the entire episode from tape and encoded it with DivX 5.2.
The result is MUCH better than the WMF format used here.
I also chose to publish the entire sequence from 1988 - 45 minutes total length. Its 125 MB but considering it is also over 4 times longer than this 10 minute excerpt Divx shines compared to microsofts video format WMF.
You must use the DivX player though - the windows media player does not accurately sync audio and video.
Seach for keyword "Poona" to find the new version.

Nothing bad here - this is a very objective and subtle documentary, using just the skillfully edited footage, following a pretty lady around town, and telling no other story in particular.

I suppose most people's interest in this film would also be minimal, but that doesn't diminish the truth and shy importance of it. Its music and images were diverse and haunting and kept my attention the whole time. I loved watching the activities of the vendors, the beggars, the meditators, the computers, the motorists, the cyclists, the mountains, the trains, and everything else.

There are only two problems - the waviness of the film needs to be fixed (deinterlacing perhaps?), and the way it was encoded disables the search bar on your media player, so you have to watch the entire thing every time. That's just a bit inconvient in my book.

Another good example of why the open source movies archive exists in the first place. Not for the spectacular, just for the rare and unsung. This was a warm, delightful film.
